Damn...didn't expect this here today...we've had some really bad news. The doggies that some of you have seen before, off site, or clicking my lame links, have just gotten some terrible news. The older one in the pics here, bigger, by the name of Wyatt, has terminal lymphoma.

Crap. Only a few weeks to go. Went from perfect health to any day now in two short weeks.

Dire and I have talked about it a number of times, and I was just comforting someone here about it, and then this...

Tell -

Terrible news and you have my sympathies. I already know I am going to have to take a few days off when Kenzie dies. I don't even want to think about it.

Our next door neighbors have two Corgis and a Golden - you should see the fur fly when they are playing with Kenzie - talk about "Dogs in a pile".

Thanks Mando; yep, the one that is passing is the friendliest dog I've encountered in my 50+ yrs with many...the smaller one is the crankiest sort you'd ever imagine, more than willing to engage any and all comers, much to the dismay of the older one ("uh...der...we have to fight again? can't we just slobber all over them instead?").

So sorry to hear this sad news, William Tell. I know how really awful it is to lose them. Here are our 3 cats - well, Harry and Chloe are our cats now. Billy went missing in August and is presumed dead. It was truly terrible - I still tear up thinking about it. He was a feral little cat that lived in our greenhouse and eventually allowed me the privilege of sitting in my lap. I hope your remaining time with Wyatt is sweet.

WT,

Words can't express how sorry I am to hear that...worst part of having dogs in our lives is how short their lives can be. really sorry, man. They're both great-looking dogs, btw.

Thanks Grendel; realized I coulda picked a better shot or two, but those were handy...yep, the best little herding dogs you can find. When we go hiking here in the SW, they never leave the "group", whether it's the wife and I, or with the kids, or a larger group on a nature walk...they travel from front to back of the group, pausing, checking, making certain no one is left behind, or strays off trail. If someone does, they wait--go to "get them", make certain the group recognizes it, etc.

Really funny given how small they are...those Welsh are all right--no wonder I like Miss D so much.

Hey! So, I had to post to let you know that my sister had a corgi named "maximus" so that name is near and dear to my heart...

Thanks for the kind words.
